February was another busy month for the Manage It app and March is shaping up to be a great month as well.
Here are some of the new things we've added to help you be more productive:
- New Mac OSX app
- Add tasks to the bottom of the list
- Add tasks using your voice
- Speed improvements
New app for Mac OS X
After over a year of going back and forth with Apple, we finally got approval for our Mac OS X app. Here are some of the advantages of using the Mac app over the app in your web browser:
- You can use the app even if you do not have an internet connection.
- You can put the app icon on your desktop or your dock
- More keyboard shortcuts
- Notification badge in the dock (if you put the app there)
Add tasks to the bottom of the list
You might not have even noticed a small feature we added, but it will surely make your life easier. You can now choose to add new tasks to the top or bottom of the list by toggling the arrow to the left of the "Add Task" text field. Click this arrow to set whether tasks get added to the top or bottom of the task list. This will save you from having to manually move tasks to the bottom of the list when adding a group of tasks.
Add tasks using your voice
If you are using the Chrome web browser, you can now add tasks by just talking to your computer. To add tasks using voice, click the microphone icon in the "Add Task" field, then just say the name your task. Please note, the first time you use this feature you may have to give us permissions to use your microphone.
We are always looking to make the app faster. Last month we made some improvements that made sorting and adding tasks faster. If you have a small list of tasks you might not notice an improvement, but if you have thousands of tasks in a project you will definitely see a marked improvement in performance.
We hope everyone is having a productive March. As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions!
